“Dumbo” and “Shazam!” To Keep Top Spots Over Easter Weekend

Family favourites to retain the Easter Box Office top spots whilst "Avengers: Endgame" amasses 1,258,000 Advanced Ticket Sales!

(April 18, 2019) – “Dumbo” and “Shazam!” are set to keep their top two positions in the Box Office top 10, with “Dumbo” remaining ahead of the DC Blockbuster, according to cinema data experts Applaudience.

Alongside “Dumbo” and “Shazam!”, other family films including “Wonder Park” and “Missing Link” remain in the top ten. “Wild Rose” is expected to keep its place in the top 10 and set to earn an additional £400,000 in Box Office sales with new stalker drama “Greta” forecast to reach £450,000.
